Interesting. As a private pilot I flew to VSE many years ago, the infrastructure is good enough for general aviation, there is a VOR, I had a good meal at the restaurant, but an alternative to OPO? Not unless significant and very costly investments make such a project viable, IMHO.Jump to post

Next flight should be MIA - LISJump to post
Apart from that, these route proving flights carry lots of invited passengers like aviation journalists, etc.Jump to post
TAP on tour to Asia?? Or just the model, not TP one? Yes and no! I think Airbus is flying the first customer A330-900 in TAP colors on the tour. The plane will be delivered to TAP later this summer. Absolutely right. Although, according to TAP's CEO, it's going to be November/December until she is ...Jump to post
She took off from GRU a few minutes ago. It doesn't say where she is going. Possibly MIA...Jump to post
She was to fly LIS - GIG yesterday, by diverted to GRU. Any idea why?Jump to post
Yes, just follow this link:

1st TAP neo about to land in LISJump to post
If the MoM is going to sit 220-270 pax, that aircraft already exists.Jump to post
IMHO there is also one more reason for Portuguese isn't an official language, the two varieties of Portuguese European and Brazilian can be so far removed from each other that it isn't obvious for a non-native speaker to understand what the other speaker is saying even more so than Spanish. You mea...Jump to post
Absolutely right. It's within the range of the "normal" A321N.Jump to post
I remember clearly that when AC disclosed their 2017 annual results (few weeks ago), this part of adding more A333s was also revealed by them and one member on this forum on that thread, clearly stated that these were ex SQ birds. The ex-SQ aircraft also have the Trent 700 EP2 (enhanced performance...Jump to post
[quote="winGl3t"]I guess Porto, Portugal (OPO), must be on TOP 3: +10,7 million passengers in 2017.
Absolutely. The taxiway only goes about halfway down the runway. Quite a bummer when the airport is operating in LVO and rwy 17 is the active rwy...

Purely from a passenger point of view, a switch from an A340 to a 777 is a retrograde step and I hope they don't do it. Agree. Fully. The A343 is so MUCH NICER to fly on than any 777. Period. Absolutely. Flew LHR-BOS recently in a BA777. Awful. Very noisy cabin. Back on VS A346 - What a difference!...Jump to post
She surely looks great. Look forward to seeing her in the air.Jump to post
The start of operations of CS-TVA is now essentially dependent on certification by ANAC, which could take several weeks as this is the first A320 to be certified in Portugal.[/quote] That I find odd. The A320neo was certified by both FAA and EASA. Is ANAC anything better / more competent to certify ...Jump to post
Good question...Jump to post
TAP´s first neo (CS-TVA) flew home to LIS yesterday.
It's been officially delivered for a while (all white), but it had to be painted, hence the time gap between official delivery and the flight to its new home.
It seems the crew has flown the LIS-STR flight the day before the incident and were replacing the crew that arrived at STR on the inbound flight of that day, that would return to work on the flight on the next day Enviado do meu ASUS_Z00AD através do Tapatalk Unlikely, as CS-TPT flew LIS-STR just b...Jump to post
There is something I still don't understand, or perhaps it hasn't been explained yet: This particular FO was about to fly STR - LIS, right?, so I presume he flew LIS - STR (the outbound flight) just before that flight. The usual turnaround in short/medium flights takes something like 45/50 minutes, ...Jump to post
The flight that was cancelled was the return flight to Lisbon, according to the news. I presume they flew LIS-STR and had a normal (35 to 45 min) turnaround. Wasn't he drunk during the LIS-STR flight? Did he get drunk in STR? Pilots don't usually leave the aircraft during such short turnarounds, apa...Jump to post
The A330 can operate to ORD. That said, I see a top-up order at LH going to LX, to replace both the A343s and B77Ws (the B77Ws would move to LH to retire the B744s). That said, there is a question of what replaces the A343s at Edelweiss. You're right. But as we know, their A330-300 are still quite ...Jump to post
There are many A332s flying around the globe. Some of those will be replaced by A338, I would think.Jump to post
Just to give a little update on this. Both flights where indeed operated by HiFly's CS-TQP. Great cabin crew (mixed HiFly/Air Greenland), generous seat pitch, flawless operation (the departure out of SFJ was a little late but this is normal because they have to wait for all the Dash-8's with connec...Jump to post
Onto newly built -900s AND available as a retrofit? Probably no point in it. A winglet's performance is dependent on the spanwise lift distribution of the wing inboard it. Change one without changing the other and your likely to have subpar performance. Sharklets were retrofitted onto A320s, B767s ...Jump to post
Are the recently announced improvements to the -900 (aero, wing twist, winglets etc.) expected to be applied to the -1000, improving it further, or are they already on the -1000? These are actually from the 1000 and headed on to the 900.... The winglet is new though and will go first on the -900. O...Jump to post

Could be... Normally, the tail would at this stage already have TAP's colours.Jump to post
When are TAP due to get their first neos?Jump to post
